*Best Lauren8 Coutty .Farmer
* . o * S, e S o e S * e e * 0
Who arethe best farmers in Lan
rens county ? The children of the sev
enth grade in the rural schoola have
attempted to answer the question and
bave given reasons therefor. The
question was propounded to them in
recent examinations and the replies in
some instances were printed in the
last issue of "The School Journal",
the interesting publication of the coun
ty department of education. Of course
several severe cases of "big head"
may be exNpocted to develop from :the
publication of these opinions passet!
by Laurens county school children and
some (ifilculty nay be experienced In
keeping these agricultural sharks
within bounds, but probably they will
get over it after a spell and return to
earth again. Anyway, it has been
suggested that if they feel any dis
comfort in occupying the dizzy height
to which their young adimirers have
elevated them, they might relieve
themselves and return to the lower
level of their neighbors by making a
contribution to the treasury of the
said '"School Journal" which Is sadly
in need of friends.
The names of the pupils are not
given in some instances, but the re
plies are given by niumber, each child
having been -designated by a number
when the questions were submitte-d.
Thus, No. 6 of Frien-dhip is pulil No.
5 in Friendship school, etc. The fol
lowing are the answers submitted by
some of-the pupils:
